In the month of June 2008, TINKEBELL. attended Beijing.
After spending several days walking around she found an old man
selling birds at a local market.
The man looked extremely sad, but also gave her the impression to
be extremely kind for his birds.
He was surely a poor man who did everything he could and gave
everything he owned to his children-birds.
This was a man who needed to be saved.
TINKEBELL. decided to spent five days, to bring the man the things
with which she would need to be saved,
as she was in his situation.
So she did:
# On the first day, she brought him a huge cake which was
especially made for him.
# On the second day she brought him the nicest new clothes she
# On the third day she gave him the biggest and cutest pink
# On the fourth day she asked the kindest haircutter, to give him a
# On the fifth day she ordered her favorite food at her favorite
restaurant and made the waitress bring it to him.
After the fifth day she saw that the old man had become extremely
happy and she realized: She saved his world.
# In 'SAVE THE WORLD' TINKEBELL. shows how western people and
organizations often feel the need to help others when a situation
doesn't correspond with their own life expectations. The
impossibility of really changing these situations according to a
western standard and all the consequences and (mis)communication
this can generate, is the central point of research within this
Later 'The old man in
Beijing' became 'pilot project' for the SAVE THE WORLD
